Sounds like your on your way
one very important thing is make sure your getting enough protein. It's important to keep muscle / build muscle as we age. I didn't know that when I was younger and lost a lot due to losing weight and now am trying to gain some of it back. Protein will also keep you satisfied longer and keep hunger a way longer too!
